About Jesse Colombo
Jesse has a successful history as a bubble and financial crisis prognosticator, having started this website, “Stock Market Crash!,” in early 2004 for the specific purpose of warning about the then little-known U.S. housing and banking bubble and how it would lead to a catastrophic financial crash. Stock Market Crash! was one of a very small handful of websites devoted to the housing and banking bubble topic during that time and was featured in a 2005 LA Times article for this reason. The 2007-to-Present crisis that Jesse warned of unfolded almost exactly as he had described several years earlier, helping to draw well over 2 million unique visitors to the website and resulted in The Times of London calling him one of “The Ten People Who Predicted the Meltdown,” along with economists Nouriel Roubini and Stephen Roach. Though the Stock Market Crash! website is currently under renovation, the site’s original 2004 housing bubble & market crash predictions are viewable via the Wayback Machine web archives.
Now, eight years later and far more experienced, Jesse is warning about bubbles again – a whopping new crop of eight this time on his recently launched website, The Bubble Bubble. Jesse sincerely hopes he is wrong this time around.
Jesse’s background in finance started when he was a precocious 15-year old who used his life savings to buy his first stock, Bradley Pharmaceuticals, just a few days after the September 11th 2001 attacks after spending the summer vacation researching and following it. Within just a few months, Jesse doubled his money, sold the stock and was hooked on investing and finance ever since. Jesse spent the rest of high school reading every finance and economics book he could find, trading stocks, options and currencies and, though a very good student, getting into trouble for sneaking out of class to place trades on the school library’s computers. After graduating from high school one year early, Jesse used the extra time to continue studying finance, trade and build Stock Market Crash! before attending college.
Focusing on finance and accounting, Jesse earned a Bachelor’s degree, cum laude, from State University of New York at Stony Brook in 2008, ironically graduating straight into the economic crisis that he foresaw several years earlier. Jesse is currently employed as a private investor, web entrepreneur and occasional business consultant.
One of Jesse’s significant long-term goals is to form an investment trust that operates on Warren Buffett-style value investing principles for the purpose of taking key positions in bargain-priced stock shares and businesses during the more intense phases of the coming economic crisis that he foresees. Benjamin Graham, Warren Buffett’s mentor, made his fortune during the Great Depression by operating an investment trust that purchased shares of quality companies that were selling at rock-bottom prices, which proceeded to dramatically rise in price as the economy recovered from the Depression.
